The Department of Economics is delighted to welcome Prof. Jose Miguel Abito
I am an applied microeconomist with research interests in industrial organization, regulation and environmental economics. My research spans a variety of topics such as evaluating incentives in regulated industries, understanding consumer misinformation and its welfare consequences, and developing theoretical and empirical methodologies to study questions in antitrust and regulation. Industries and markets I have studied include the electricity industry, the extended warranty market, and the infant formula industry.
Prior to joining Ohio State, I was an Assistant Professor of Business Economics and Public Policy at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. I received my PhD in Economics from Northwestern University.
At OSU I will be teaching an undergraduate course in Government and Business and a PhD course in Empirical Methods in Industrial Organization. I am also looking forward to advising PhD students at the Department.
